TRAINING: Conflicts Over Commons Summer School Series on Fisheries
Conflicts over Commons Summer School Series will center on a specific common pool resource (CPR) each year, starting with the 2012 summer school on fisheries. Broadly, the focus of the events will be on the dynamics leading to unsustainable outcomes and the conflicts among stakeholders, but specific themes will be devised for each CPR. Scholars from Boğaziçi University (Istanbul) and the University of Manchester, as well as guest speakers, will be delivering the lectures. Representatives from NGO’s and related industries will also take part, in order to incorporate a broader information base in addressing issues related to common pool resources, and to formulate better informed solution proposals, grounded in real world issues faced by CPR sectors.
The events will provide an exclusive forum to examine how common pool resource problems are affecting various stakeholders; deliberate on sustainable management arrangements, challenges and best practices; debate on the ways to make higher education institutions a part of the solution to address the evolving environmental, social and economic issues; and elaborate on institutionalized ways to incorporate civil society and industry input to academic research on environmental issues and sustainable development questions. They will also provide excellent networking opportunities both within academics and between academics and actors from the industry.
This year’s summer school will take place at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, between August 27th-September 2nd, 2012.
Deadline: June 22, 2012
